I'm doing a science fair project and my question is, "Does the surface area of a
jolly rancher effect how it tastes?" Well, i've checked a bunch of websites, and
it says nothing about how the surface area of how something tastes and how it
effects its taste. For example, they have a jolly rancher in all different
sizes. I ate one of those rectangular ones and found that they taste sweeter
then those regular bite sized jolly rancher. I'd greatly appreciate your help! 
Can you please tell me all about taste buds and how it tastes with different 
surface areas of candy/food?
